Abstract

In April of 198 3, a sequence of earthquakes were recorded by the National Seismic Network where the epicenters were located in the upper reaches of the Srinagarind Reservoir. A detailed evaluation of these earthquakes has been initiated since that time. Network of micro seismic instruments have also been installed in the region in order to establish the capability of higher resolution for seismic parameters and allow the greater understanding of the mechanism of the activity. After seven years of monitoring and data collecting, analyses of the results have been performed. Results obtained from the evaluation of overall characteristic seismicity, including the review of world wide data on the seismic, geologic and characteristics of reservoir triggered seismicity (RTS) ensure us to accept the high possibility of reservoir induced seismicity phenomena.

Geological and Seismicity Evaluation of Srinagarind Dam

St. Louis, Missouri

In April of 198 3, a sequence of earthquakes were recorded by the National Seismic Network where the epicenters were located in the upper reaches of the Srinagarind Reservoir. A detailed evaluation of these earthquakes has been initiated since that time. Network of micro seismic instruments have also been installed in the region in order to establish the capability of higher resolution for seismic parameters and allow the greater understanding of the mechanism of the activity. After seven years of monitoring and data collecting, analyses of the results have been performed. Results obtained from the evaluation of overall characteristic seismicity, including the review of world wide data on the seismic, geologic and characteristics of reservoir triggered seismicity (RTS) ensure us to accept the high possibility of reservoir induced seismicity phenomena.
